I was all set to put off all this work I have to do this morning to go through the recent crime reports, but the NWA Demazette's site is down. Must have ice in the tubes, eh?

I'll try to be better about shirking my work. I see the Iconoclast has ceased to exist (RIP), so someone has to bring the really important issues before the community.

Anyway, winter weather always brings the goods, so I look forward to some interesting crime in the next couple days when the site is back online. Also, anyone have anything worthwhile to report from inauguration day (aside from the feeling of a huge burden lifted off your back)? Let me know in the comments below...
